No need to do that.

(Besides: there are portable-versions of LibreOffice[1] so that you
can install LibreOffice on any operating system having any kind of
reduced permissions. But this is not my point.)

Yes, this was the thing I wanted to mention: Word is able to read in
ODF. And since ODF has a *way* more similar kind of "markup" to
docx, it should result in much better results than using HTML.

But: I never tried it by myself.

So I was wondering, if there are good arguments against using ODF in
the first place and using HTML as best choice.
